Goofs

After taking Amy to the hospital to get her stomach pumped, Robert pays a visit to the men that put her there. After he asks for their cell phones and any other video recording equipment, we see one of the men go to the door and lock it. When Robery leaves about a minute after, he doesn't have to unlock the door; he just pulls down the handle to open it. Rotary locks such as this work independently from the door handle. See more »

Quotes

Robert McCall: I'm your father. You mama forgot to tell you about me.

Alternate Versions

The UK release is pre-cut to secure a 15 certificate instead of an 18, reducing scenes of "strong violence and gore". Compared to the New Zealand release (whose rating board also releases full running times in mm:ss), it's 11s shorter at 120:34 instead of 120:45. The cut version was released on DVD & Blu-ray while the uncut version was released on Ultra HD Blu-ray. The following was removed:
  • an already broken arm being further twisted
  • two knives being pulled upwards in a man's body at the end of stabbing
  • a gory shot of insides hanging out after an explosion
  • a man's spine being severed before he's thrown off a building

I just want to mention one part
21 July 2018 | by esferdezSee all my reviews

The movie is good. Im a Denzel fan, and a Fuqua fan, so naturally i enjoyed it. I would like to draw attention to one part specifically - when Denzel has the serious talk with the young gentleman after they get off the elevator about halfway through. In my humble opinion, acting doesn't get any better than that. It is the cream resting at the top of his consistently excellent work. A remarkable example of the power of film.
